    I'm reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, The Open Society and Its Enemies by Karl Popper, Horns by Joe Hill, some random Michel Foucault, and Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil by Alain Badiou.

    I finally started the warlord chronicles by Bernard Cornwell, I hate this Lancelot so much that I think I won't ever be able to like any Lancelot in another Arturian stories haha

    Re: The Great Books! ( And What Are You Currently Reading? )

    I'm looking for some good novels where the main character is teleported into a different world/dimension. It would be cool if the main character is smart, cynical & morally ambigious (like Tyrion/Arya from ASOIF). So no overly kind hearted guy who would sacrifice himself for his friends or world. Any genre is fine as long as it fits this.
    Thanks!

    I knew this whole exchange felt familiar!


    Doh! Did you enjoy it? What were your thoughts on it?

    Another suggestion which is not exactly teleportation to another world, but rather our world (victorian england), familiar yet different, with magic is Susanah clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. It feels like a dickens novel (not in prose really, mainly in atmosphere) mixed with harry potter. Highly recommend it.

    I'm on fifth book (The One Tree). I would tell my thoughts after completing the entire series but yes the series is pretty good. Thanks for recommending it!

    Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King

    Just finished reading this book and not bad. A different take on a detective novel, the characters were okay and story wasn't too complicated. Pretty direct to the point plot, nothing special.

    Have you ever finished a book (or book series) and just cried?

    Needless to say I just finished The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    I know that I was going to start Name of the Wind next, but I've decided to read The Giver first. It's much shorter and will be an easy knock out so that I can see the movie coming up in a month.

    I wanted to read Lord of Rings trilogy but I have already seen the film series & I'm not sure if I would be able to enjoy book series as movies spoiled the fun for me

    The books are intensely better than the movies. I had seen the movies before and the read was still immensely worth it. However, it's been years since I've watched them so I'd forgotten several things. I'll probably watch the movies again sometime this summer.


    Update on The Giver: So far this book is creepy as fuck.

    ---------- Post added at 03:29 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:40 AM ----------

    Update on The Giver: I always think about how my vision is so limited, and that it's such a shame that I'm limited to the visible spectrum. I want to see into the UV, Infrared, Gamma spectrum. And then after chapter 13 I'm suddenly happy I at least have the visible spectrum.

    Update on The Giver : That ending. I have to think. Whuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh. So much existential feeling surfacing.

    So I started reading The Name of The Wind....

    What is this book???

    Is this a si-fi or a fantasy???

    Did he just apply quantum theories to magic???

    Narrator: This story is about to become really dark and sad and shitty and awful.
    Me: Is surprised when the story becomes really dark and sad and shitty and awful.
